The tech scene is bubbling over with new ideas for paragliding and hang gliding. Pilots have choice like never before – do you go for an all-in instrument for a wallet’s worth of beer tokens, or do you save the cash and hook up your smartphone to a widget and spiral up to base with ‘Kerching!’ ringing in your ears?
Bruce Goldsmith has written for Cross Country for 20 years and is always up with the latest trends in paragliding. A designer, comp pilot, writer and XC guru he knows what’s worthwhile and what’s a fad or fashion.
In the latest issue he downloads a few apps to his iPhone 5 and goes flying. Find our how he gets on in issue 154 of Cross Country (July/August).
